Overview
More
This store has been referred to as an "art gallery" and "not just a special shopping experience but a learning experience as well" due to the fact that you will always find Citlali at the store giving detailed explainations about the origens, representaions and unique techniques used in the making of the finer handcrafts of all parts of Mexico. With more then 30 yrs. experience searching for the handcrafts and selecting the pieces for how they represent the people, the culture and the history of Mexico at it's best. There are photos throughout the store where you can meet the artiist while he or she is creating the particular item you are admiring. You will not find "Playa del Carmen" or "Riviera Maya" written on any of the handcrafts as we do not deal in souvenirs.

The artisans have made some very nice pieces. It's not the Chinese imports that a lot of places push as hand made and local. Definitely worth a look

I wonder if everything in the shop is actually made in Mexico? I only asked about the things I actually cared about purchasing. Just be careful, as many things are mass-produced, even in-country. Nevertheless, you can find some nice souvenir items here and the people...More
